I seem to have AntiVirus System Pro in my computer:
Whatever program I am trying to start, it pops up the message: "File such and such is infected". The same happens when I hit ctrl-alt-del- it does not let me open Task manager. Internet explorer only tries to open their website- no other sites would open. System restore would not open either.
Periodically it also opens Security Center and another popup message: Your computer is under attack from Internet...
In all cases is asks me if I want to stop the virus attach and activate Anti_virus software.

I download rkill.com into another computer and moved to my infected PC desktop via a USB stick. I clicked dozens of times on rkill, periodically a black box appeared with words: Terminating known malware, be patient, but then another box pops up: "rkill is infected". It does not seem to terminate the malware.
I also tried to run DDS- it would let me run it- says the file is infected (note I dowsnloaded dss to USB stick from another computer and dragged it to desktop of infected computer- not sure if it is the same as saving a file to desktop, but I have no other ways of transfering the file).
My op system: Windows XP SP2, antivirus CA.
Thanks in advance for help,
